Oklahoma City guard Reggie Jackson is 6-3. JaVale McGee is 7-0 and is in the business of dunking on people and swatting shots.
Not this time. Last night Jackson was a real highlight for the Thunder, his performance punctuated by this explosive two-hand slam right on McGee: Read More »
Holy … did you see the fast break alley oop that LeBron James caught on Jason Terry right before halftime a few minutes ago? Read More »
If you watched the Clippers and Knicks on National TV yesterday you know that L.A. sort of sleepwalked through the first portion of the game but then were shocked back to life by series of massive dunks by Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. [Check out the 10 Best Blake Griffin/DeAndre Jordan Dunks of March (so far)]
One of those kickstarters was this Blake Griffin one-handed fastbreak alley-oop from Chris Paul in the third quarter. Chris Copeland is lucky he gave a half-hearted steal attempt on the pass or he might not be alive this morning. Read More »

Part of the Hoosier steamrolling on the Illini was this Indiana fast break punctuated by a 360 dunk from the beast that is Victor Oladipo. Check it out: Read More »
How’s this for a performance on Senior Night? Baylor’s Brittney Griner single-handedly demolished visiting Kansas State in her final home game, racking up a Big 12 record 50 points en route to a 90-68 victory.
But the real standout of Griner’s performance was one particular dunk. Her throwing down is nothing new – she’s recorded 13 other official dunks in her college career. The dunk she unleashed at the start of the second half (while the game was still close) was something out of the old Dwight Howard‘s book. Watch her hit this poor girl with a drop step, baseline dunk: Read More »
Last night in L.A., vintage Mamba was on full display against the Atlanta Hawks. Kobe Bryant finished the game with 34 points and was in full takeover mode the last few minutes of the game, willing his team to a 99-98 win.
Kobe had multiple huge baskets down the stretch – including the game-winning layup with nine seconds left – but the bucket everyone has been talking about since last night was the turn-back-the-clock dunk he put on Josh Smith with a little more than two minutes left in the game to put the Lakers up one.

Whoa. Sooo many crazy dunks and other highlights just flooding out of last night’s games. Here’s one from the the NBA Development League: Watch as Austin Toros 6-4 guard Chris Roberts smashes one on 7-5 San Antonio center Will Foster like it’s nothing. Read More »
Blake Griffin has been on quite a tear these last few weeks, seemingly unloading some vicious dunk (or two) on some opposing player almost every single night.
Last night in Indiana kept true to the schedule, with Blake detonating a lefty dunk on the Pacers’ Ian Mahinmi. Ian is no little guard getting caught on the break – the Indiana big man goes 6-11, 230 pounds. And yet, when he collides with Griffin, Blake continues to elevate and dunk with his off hand.

LeBron James regularly puts on a show – usually some kind of dunk display – in pregame warmups. But when he broke out this one before Miami’s game against the Cavs the other night, the internet fervor it ignited had everyone newly laser-locked on layup lines last night.
LeBron did not disappoint (until later). Read More »
